Governor Wa Iria Resumes At The Bomas Protesting Against The IEBC
May 31, 2022
After being ruled out of the presidential campaign, Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria resumed his protests. This is against the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) which have barred him.
The IEBC blocked Wa Iria’s candidacy on Monday, claiming that he had not gathered enough signatures to be cleared as a presidential contender.
Mwangi wa Iria had only managed to submit signatures from 22 counties only which is short of the required 24.
Wa Iria and his supporters, on the other hand, remained steadfast. They set up camps at Anniversary Towers on Tuesday in the hopes of meeting Chebukati, who had refused to give them an audience.
The governor went on to suggest that the Bomas of Kenya were a crime scene. He claimed that the IEBC was telling Kenyans that they were validating signatures when they didn’t have a signature registry to do so.
